‘The Simpsons’ officially coming to the D23 Expo
Disney’s recent success of attaining the rights to any 21st Century Fox properties is a huge achievement, and now the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, The Simpsons, will make its first appearance at D23.
The panel will take place on Saturday, August 24 at 10 a.m. in the D23 Expo Arena where Creator Matt Groening, Executive Producer Al Jean, Executive Producer Matt Selman, Supervising Director Mike B. Anderson and stars Nancy Cartwright and Yeardley Smith will talk about the new, upcoming season, including an exclusive Simpsons collectible item for everyone in attendance.
During the Expo, The Simpsons fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with Bart, Lisa, and the rest of The Simpsons family on the convention floor. No word if these will be the same costumes we are used to seeing at both Universal Studios parks.
A few fans will even get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet Matt Groening and the rest of the panelists during a one-hour autograph signing session of an exclusive The Simpsons mini-poster following the panel. D23 always brings fun surprises, and it’s very cool to see The Simpsons joining that rank!
